Because it is entirely off topic for this thread and completely inappropriate. Plus I don't see any new questions that I haven't already answered 20 times in other threads (some of which are locked because they became political shitfights) or images (which are being deleted because the artist asked us to take down all of their artwork because they're sick of political shitfights on their art).
But, Ok, just for argument sake, let me do it and then you can see whether it's appropriate for this thread or not.
Replying to their questions line by line:
Oh, I'm sorry. I can be nicer.
Thank you. If you keep posting like you were, we will have to ban you at some point.
Lemme just ask a couple questions and make a statement, then.
I can't wait.
Why exactly are cartoon nazis bad
Not all cartoon nazis are bad. Donald Duck was a really great example of a great cartoon nazi.
But if the image promotes IRL political parties like Nordic Resistance Movement, Brazilian Integralist Action, Christian Identity, White Patriot Party, or similar groups that promote Nazism or other hateful ideologies, we delete them. We don't want those on this site. Those groups are not welcome. Their members are of course welcome, as long as they follow our rules. But we aren't willing to host images promoting those groups or their IRL agendas.
Other images that portray cartoon nazis are really a case by case thing. Some are perfectly fine, or even encouraged, like the images satirizing the Microsoft Twitter AI.
Other than that, just reduce your question to "why are nazis bad" and I hope that's the answer you were looking for.
while cartoon pedophilia
Our rules already cover this sort of content and we do not plan on revising them any time soon.
And, obviously, you very much disagree with the site as to whether a drawing of cartoon horses fucking is pedophilia.
If you would like more information on this, please review the September Rule #5 change, and any of the many threads in the Site & Policy thread discussing the definition of foalcon on this site.
If you need help finding those, please report yourself with a reason of "Other" and let us know what you are looking for in the text field provided so that this thread is not derailed with support questions even further than it already is.
Please filter it.
Please filter it.
Please report it. Images or comments containing racial, sexual, homophobic, or otherwise demeaning slurs, or similarly abusive content, should be reported. Please note that during this current crisis we are not reviewing images that were posted prior to this change, so if you report an image from 6 years ago that report will probably just be closed.
If there are images that you think , communism, incest, and extreme violence and murder okay?
I don't like those images. I filter those images. If the image doesn't break our rules we ask you to filter them.
Are you claiming that a nazi pony drawing promotes that ideology?
Some do. Some don't. Some are deleted for Rule #0 because of the actual message of the image. Some are hosted even though they otherwise would break Rule #0 because they are examples of memes from the fandom.
It's a snapshot.
If you do believe that, then why are all of those allowed?
If there are any actual images that are "Anthro + Foalcon" or that show IRL children or IRL pedophilia or bestiality, report it.
And if there's a fetish or theme that you don't like then you should please filter it.
Cartoon characters killing each, or having sex with each other, or doing whatever they want to with each other doesn't break our rules unless it breaks our rules.
Cartoon characters who are allegories for IRL people is fine — Hasbro did it, too, so artists are just following the precedent that was set by the actual show.
But if an image is recreating an IRL racist meme and just substitutes ponies for people, then that's still an IRL racist meme.
And, just to be clear, someone drawing an image of the Cutie Mark Crusaders, drawn as ponies, having sex with each other and Big Mac, who is also drawn as a pony, does not make the artist a pedophile.
And whether the image itself is pedophilic is a subject of great debate, but this site already has a policy on how we are handling those, and we have no intention of changing that policy.
I understand you have problems with those images, I don't like most of them either. Please filter them and stop kink shaming people.
Why do they not promote themselves?
I do not believe murder novels promote murder.
If you don't believe that, why are you banning it?
Because images depicting racial, sexual, homophobic, or otherwise demeaning slurs, and images promoting hateful ideologies, are not welcome on this site.
Either it's all fictional content that means nothing or it all promotes negative, and often illegal, things and you need to so some more banning.
Your all-or-nothing argument is not persuasive.
We do not have to ban 'all religious content' because we delete an image specifically calling IRL Catholics murderers.
Nor do we have to delete all images making fun of U.S. Democrats because we deleted an image specifically calling for U.S. Republicans to be shot in the streets.
If the image depicts racial, sexual, homophobic, or otherwise demeaning slurs, or promotes hateful ideologies, they not welcome on this site. Same goes for comments. @Background Pony #BA40
How was that?
For me, I feel like that completely and totally ignores the OP's request:
This is not a place to play 20 questions with the mods or ask for official answers on policy
Do you still disagree with me?
now that it's locked i'm just questioning whether it will continue here
No, absolutely not. That's not the purpose of this thread.
or if the mods will not be discussing it further
Not when I'm sleeping I won't be. And probably not for the rest of the day, I've got other stuff to do.
That thread was locked because for pages it was just people debating which was worse — Nazis or Communists — combined with other unrelated content.
Even if this site had an opinion about which was worse in the IRL, that's none of our business.
Our only business here is this site, and I think we've been super clear that images depicting racial, sexual, homophobic, or otherwise demeaning slurs, or images that promote hateful ideologies are not welcome on this site and if people see them they should report them.
It doesn't matter to me if Image A: "An image promoting hateful Nazi themes
" is better or worse than Image B: "An image promoting hateful Communist themes
Which one was worse doesn't matter to me — they both get deleted (assuming they were reported or anyone on staff notices them).
May we get back to the point of this thread now?
Because as a user who wants to talk about the subject this thread is about, I would really prefer to be a user who wants to talk some more about what this thread is actually about.
And, I really don't want to see the same kind of run-away shitfight that happened in the "Ask Mods Important Questions" thread happen here, too.
Let's just keep this thread on topic, ok?
And if you see images that you think break our rules, please report them.
